God invests in us.
A beloved friend of mine when consulting the Lord the other day was given an acronym to work by.
The Lord has been impressing upon us as a team,the importance of obedience bringing intimacy.
God is very orderly in the supernatural sense as the supernatural is natural to Him
It may not seem in order to us but that’s our problem not His.
So my friend as a businessmen was given ROI
Return on Investment
This is very familiar to people who run businesses.
What does a boss get for his investment in people.
What does an investor get for buying shares in a company
Seed capital demands a good harvest or return.
What does a Sales Director get from his expensive over pampered and superiority conscious sales team
All need to get a return on their investment
But there is one catch which is why businesses and ventures often fail.
They need all to be aligned on the same strategy. They need to work closely together.
There is no point in a sales team selling the wrong product
A CEO driven by his ambitions that don’t align with shareholders will cause the demise probably of both parties.
God,the Ultimate Strategist before Time began loves alignment under His Plumb line and along His Rhumb line not ours. When we step off we go on the enemy’s which is three degrees off.
So ROI to God means
We get to repentance by receiving His Goodness
In that order and not the other way round
A 2 Chronicles 7 14 moment
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
This brings transformation, rebirth, new ideas and cohesion.
Turn back, go back to starting point
When you go back to the start you go back to the Alpha; Jesus or Yeshua. He said I am the Alef and the Tau.
From G3340; (subjectively) compunction (for guilt, including reformation); by implication reversal(of [another’s] decision): – repentance.
Repentance means turning back and renewing the mind
Going back to the start where birth happens means a rebirthing.
Only found as a word in the New Testament
From G5219; attentive hearkening, that is, (by implication) complianceor submission: – obedience, (make) obedient, obey (-ing).
It’s all about obedience to faith righteousness
Bringing every thought to the obedience of Yeshua
The closest word in Hebrew
From H3245; a session, that is, company of persons (in close deliberation); by implication intimacy, consultation, a secret: – assembly, counsel, inward, secret (
So intimacy means closeness, counsel.
For God to invest in us, we need to repent, become obedient and seek His counsel.
You cannot carry the seven spirits of God unless you abide and take counsel from Him
By the intimacy you gain;
Fear of the Lord
And the Spirit of the Lord
No CEO is going to impart his wisdom to someone who is not listening or seeking advice on alignment
No director will empower a member of staff with might and counsel when the employee is dangerously irresponsible and disobedient.
Do you honestly think God who is the creator of all does not think like this?
When He invests in Us, we get His fullness as The Son of God did on earth.
For in Him the* whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].
An In dwelling in all directions
A Boom to ROI
